Hmm... I run into this when I was trying to compile an experimental build of VirtualBox with the Qt5.7 toolkit on OSX 10.9. It was complaining that the compiler wasn't C++11 compatible (which it completely is). But, no matter what I threw at it, it would complain again at a later stage, and abort the compilation half-way. I aborted too... ;)

At least I wasn't alone. While researching for this I found that the Qt5.7 version broke a lot of projects out there...
